Gated Heart 2020 - a mixed media painting by Michele Avanti
The heart emits a green energy. When it is full and happy it is like a breathing, living emerald, glowing with joy. As we move through life, we have experiences that wound our hearts and the green may become blue or purple and even have bits of red. If we allow fear of love to overtake our trusting joyful hearts, we lace them up.
The harmonics of fear are red, orange and black. This painting is a symbol of a gated heart. One that is latched closed due to beliefs embedded with fear. The latch is very intricate because the experiences that close a heart are many, some small embarrassments, others painful rejections and divorce. I have used the symbol of the fish on the latch of the gate as many ancient cultures see the fish as one of harmony in marriage. It is also considered a sacred food. Love for all of us is a sacred food. It sustains us, harmony with ourselves and then with others is what it takes to unlatch the gate of the heart, thus they are on the latch handles.
I hope you enjoy this work. I completed it because of where we are in time during this pandemic of 2020. It is the image I added to the short essay below.
If I told you, I love you, could you hear me?
If I told you, you are magnificent, beautiful, and more complex than the universe, would you believe me?
If I told you the only reason you cannot see your own light is because you have been trained to believe you are small, insignificant, weak and powerless, would you understand me?
We stand at the gate of awareness, of truth, of the power of our own creation. On the other side of the gate is so much light, love and support that our linear minds cannot begin to grasp it. But our hearts beat loudly.."Unlatch the gate.." Our fingers stretch to touch the intricate latch and we feel the energy. We see light filtering through the edges of the frame. We see it glowing on our bare feet. Will we have the courage to open it? Can we let go of millennia of words, beliefs, images, and concepts of what we are and enter truth?
This is where we stand at this very moment, during the most powerful opportunity to shift in 26,000 years. Please, from this second on, say these words...I am ready to know the truth of who I am...I am ready to be loved...I am ready to be enlightened and I am ready to enter the integrated wholeness of creation.
